Little Monkey

(1 reviews with an average rating of 5 out of 5)

Publisher: Macmillan

Little Monkey loves living in the jungle but is frustrated that she is too small to join her troop as they pick bananas, splash in the river or relax in the treetops. Everything seems to be just out of reach, or too deep or far too dangerous for her. Fed up with always missing out, she takes matters into her own hands and embarks on an epic adventure to climb the tallest tree in the jungle. It is not an easy task and she has to show lots of courage, ingenuity and determination, but at least there is no one to stop her from trying.

Little Monkey delights in the freedom of exploring by herself and takes time to observe the little things, such as a spider spinning its web and a butterfly emerging from its cocoon. However, she is oblivious to the stealthy tiger who stalks her throughout the journey...

Humorous illustrations in pencil and watercolour fill every page of this amusing tale, which is sure to strike a chord with any fearless little adventurer who is desperate to grow up.
